Visit us for a great family day out!  Although Wilton Windmill is the top of a hill and can be seen from miles around, it can actually be quite difficult to find once you are closer to the mill. When you come along the lane (Wilton Hill), once you get to a layby, you have reached the entrance to the Windmill.

The Windmill itself is set off the lane and is hidden from view at the entrance by trees and hedges.  A short walk down the gravel track, turn right and there it is in all its glory! If you still cant’t find it, what3words will get you there! ///text.chiefs.rave

By Car
Wilton Windmill is located on the edge of the village of Wilton, near Marlborough (not Salisbury!) off the A338 between Hungerford and Burbage in Wiltshire.The postcode for satnav purposes is SN8 3SW.

By Bus

There is just one service that takes you to The Swan Inn in the middle of Wilton village and that is Route 211 which runs between Marlborough and Hungerford.

Another service, Wiltshire Connect 120 operates between Marlborough and Hungerford and will take you as close as Great Bedwyn.

By Train
The windmill is easily accessed by rail, either from the West Country or from London and Reading in the east, using the Great Western Railway service which runs between London Paddington and Penzance.  You should get off at Bedwyn Station, from where you can walk or cycle the 3.5km to the mill.  There are some hills!  You can also walk from Great Bedwyn along the towpath then turn left at Crofton Crossing up the Roman Road. (See Windmill Walks page)

The windmill is open for the 2024 season and there are guided tours on every Sunday from Easter Sunday, the 31st March until Sunday 29th September between 2pm and 5pm if you want to visit this year.

We hope that you enjoy your visit to the Windmill which is run entirely by volunteers and that you are able to make a contribution to the donations box situated by the entrance gates.  You can also donate on this website or join the Wilton Windmill Society to help keep this Wiltshire treasure open to everyone.

Please note that access to all the floors of the windmill is via steep steps and so is not suitable for everyone.  The ground floor display area is accessible and does not involve steps.
